Speaker Biography (Joachim Kopf)

After his degree in Industrial Engineering and the additional diploma as an International Welding Engineer, Joachim Kopf worked several years as an engineering consultant in the field of waste water treatment. In the year 1997 he changed to the Kopf AG, and since that time he was involved in the building and the designing of solar boats with all the necessary technologies like solar panels, battery systems and also the welding technologies for the boat building. 2005 the solar boat sector inside of the Kopf AG was hived off, and Joachim Kopf founded the independent company Kopf Solarschiff GmbH. Until today he was involved in the building of more than 55 solar boats in different sizes and for different applications - located in many countries. His company is also specialized in a lot of themes around electro mobility and photovoltaic systems - such as the manufacturing of flexible and lightweight solar panels, lithium-ion-battery systems, off-grid installations as well as solar lighting systems.
